Thimbleweed Park for Android is a point-and-click adventure game developed by Ron Gilbert and Gary Winnick for Linux, Microsoft Windows, OS X, iOS, Xbox One and Android. A PlayStation 4 version is planned 3 months after its launch. Thimbleweed Park for Android was revealed on November 18, 2014 along with a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign with a goal of US$375,000, and was released on March 30, 2017.
Thimbleweed Park for Android is a spiritual successor to Gilbert and Winnick’s previous games Maniac Mansion (1987) and The Secret of Monkey Island (1990), and is designed to be similar to graphic adventure games released in that time period, both visually and gameplay-wise.
Thimbleweed Park for Android is played similarly to early graphic adventure games; it is seen from a third person perspective, with a view of the area taking up the majority of the screen, while the bottom portion is taken up by the player’s inventory and a list of verbs, such as “use”, “pick up”, and “talk to”. By clicking on a verb followed by one or two items or characters, the player character will attempt to perform the action described. An example given in the reveal trailer was “Use balloon animal with corpse”, performed by clicking on the verb “use”, the “balloon animal” item in the player’s inventory, and a corpse found in an area in the game.
Thimbleweed Park for Android has five different player characters which the player can switch between in the middle of gameplay, similarly to Maniac Mansion.
Thimbleweed Park for Android starts off with a murder in the town of Thimbleweed Park, which two detectives (Angela Ray and Antonio Reyes) are charged with investigating. Outside of town, Delores Edmund and her siblings are gathered at the reading of her rich uncle’s will. Meanwhile, a clown named Ransome has been cursed and cannot remove his clown makeup, and on the 13th floor of the Edmund Hotel, Franklin wakes up to learn that he is dead, but doesn’t know how he got there.
